Countless wild animals are killed every single year thanks to highway accidents. Their babies are left to fend for themselves in the wilderness after their death. That is exactly what happened to this opossum. This cute baby is named Poncho. His mother got hit by a speeding car and tragically died, leaving poor Poncho all alone. When rescuers found him, Poncho was still clinging to his mother’s body, as she lay motionless in the middle of the road.
The rescuers saved him, but were worried he wouldn’t make it. Without a natural mother, a baby is always in dangerous waters. And to make matters worse, opossums are not very receptive to surrogate mothers. It was a tough road ahead for little Poncho. But that’s when a very unlikely animal stepped in and offered help. Poncho ended up being adopted by Hantu, a white German Shepherd. The beautiful dog took the opossum under her care and gave him a second chance at life.
Hantu cared for Poncho like he was her own puppy. The two have a very strong bond between one another. They are now inseparable. The following clip shows their friendship two years after the whole ordeal. Every time Hantu goes on a walk in the woods, she brings her tiny friend along with her. wait till you see this for yourself!
